Gin from Japan is developing into a sustainable trend
Japan is not usually known for a long tradition in gin. Here, rice wine ("sake") or the slightly stronger brandy "Shochu" set the tone. Nevertheless, the Far East is gradually opening up. Japan delights with its own variants of popular spirits. In addition to various whiskeys, Japanese gin plays an increasingly important role. With local botanicals and meticulous manufacturing processes, established brands such as Suntory or Nikka bring fresh momentum to this segment.
Selected ingredients make the difference
Ginkenner know: Only the different aromas of juniper, aniseed, lavender, orange, rosemary and many other ingredients make the high-proof spirit interesting. Of course, this did not escape the manufacturers of gin from Japan. To stand out from the existing market, Japanese gin offers a deliberately reduced use of ingredients. Of course, regional spices such as cherry blossom, yuzu or sacho pepper are used. With the tart aromas, Japanese gin can boast of components from sake production. Koji spores, for example, provide a slightly tart rounding off when tasting. This guarantees an exotic taste experience that brings you to a new experience. It's easy to get a taste of the botanicals. Gin from Japan also occasionally uses Riesling and potato Sochu (a fire made from rice or potatoes) as the basic alcohol. This also results in a new interaction.
Mild - even with high alcohol content
As a basis for many cocktails and the iconic long drink "gin-tonic", the classic has long been an indispensable component of any bar. Grade in recent years, the spirit has been back in great shape, and has experienced a real upswing. Even drunk makes Gin a good figure. Provided, of course, you have a perfectly finished product in front of you. And this is where Japanese gin wants to score. Due to the selected and natural flavors, the Far Eastern variant offers a particularly mild expression. Would you like to extend the gin from Japan with a delicious tonic? Then a suitable filler should be selected. Established cocktails are also a new experience thanks to the careful composition.
